...and with it comes good news; the couple quick things are as follows:
A) I walked another 1.5 miles last night in 40 minutes. Excellent!
B) I told somebody over the weekend that I'm feeling good, then sort of sheepishly added, "I feel really good actually, I have been kind of purposely playing it down." Their response was: "I know. I've seen it in your eyes." It blew me away, and actually brought tears to my eyes because they had seen it; their validation and understanding of the changes I'm making from the inside out was amazing.
C) After getting back from weighing today I thought: "Maybe I should treat myself for breakfast", which is something, after a good weigh-in during previous attempts to lose weight/get healthy/etc, that I've always done. BUT, again, for the third week in a row, I said "Nope" and just ate a regular breakfast. I'm starting to notice these moments each time and they feel good, because they are all about the true change that is occurring.
D) I lost 18 pounds this last week.
Here's to a wonderful week full of great choices for all of us!
